<p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Helvetica; font-weight: 700; "><font class="Apple-style-span" color="#0000ff" size="5"><u><a href=" [please contact me for website address] Should I Stop Smoking?
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">Speaking from experience, this is a question all smokers should consider.
But don’t stop there. Why stop harming your body? Why stop smelling bad? Why stop having
brown teeth and bad breath? Why stop coughing up something that could be a special effect in
a sci-fi movie? These are just a few questions which one could also ask. I will share with you
some of the factors which led me to finally kick the addiction.
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">It’s usually a bad sign when you smell so badly that flies decide to land at an alternate airfield.
By 1994 I was a heavy smoker. Toward the end of my stint in the financial services industry, I
was up to three (3) packs of cigarettes a day. I was young and felt bulletproof. As time
progressed, I began to view smoking differently. <font class="Apple-style-span" color="#0000ff"><u><b><a href=" [please contact me for website address] should I stop smoking?”</a></b></u></font> I asked, and this time, I
was ready to answer truthfully.
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">I was killing myself slowly and knew it. People smoke for a variety of reasons: pleasure,
boredom, stress/anxiety. I smoked because it was a way (I thought) to deal with anxiety. For
the record, this is perhaps the </span><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'; font-weight: 700; font-style: oblique">worst </span><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">way to deal with anxiety and panic attacks - the nicotine
and shortness of breath actually helped </span><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'; font-weight: 700; font-style: oblique">fuel </span><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">the attacks! At the time, I didn’t care if I was
shortening my life because I simply felt like @#%&. I beg you smokers to think about the time
you are shaving off your life. Whatever you are going through now, don’t short change yourself
and your loved ones of the great times ahead - hang in there!
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">Another reason I decided to answer the <u><b><font class="Apple-style-span" color="#0000ff"><a href=" [please contact me for website address] Should I Stop Smoking?”</a></font></b></u> question truthfully was because I
became more of a control freak as time progressed. I didn’t like the fact that I was being
controlled by something other than MYSELF. I felt like a puppet who regarded each cigarette as
a waypoint or raison d’etre. I was missing out on the good stuff while thinking about my next
smoke. That realization sparked perhaps the greatest of motivators - anger. I was ticked off
knowing that I was in fact being controlled. It’s not good when Papa Bear gets angry.
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">With this realization also came pragmatism. At the time, I calculated my cigarette expenses to
be roughly $4,100 per year - foolishness! As a schooled economist, I knew better. Had I
invested that $4,100 back in the day, I would have had a nice down payment for a home by the
time I was 28 (I smoked for 10 years). The other piece of the financial insanity was this: </span><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'; font-weight: 700; font-style: oblique">In
addition to spending obscene amounts of money to harm myself, I was lining myself up
for additional medical expenses down the road!!
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'"><font class="Apple-style-span" color="#0000ff"><b><u><a href=" [please contact me for website address] should I stop smoking?"</a></u></b></font> This a question that only you can answer. I’ve shared with you some of my
reasons to stop, but they aren’t necessarily your reasons. I hope you will find my reasons
helpful and encourage you to think about yours. If and when you decide to quit smoking, be
good to yourself and realize it is a process which can take numerous attempts before success is
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">I’m routing for you.
<p><span style="font-size: 11.000000pt; font-family: 'Helvetica'">Sincerely,
Ted Stefanski </span></p><p>If you are interested in quitting smoking, <font class="Apple-style-span" size="4" color="#0000ff"><u><b><a href=" [please contact me for website address] HERE</a></b></u></font>. </p>
